The XX Factor
I once wrote a post about Slate's XX Factor. I was upset about something Linda Hirschman wrote about Hillary. Talk about the Salad Days! In any case, today, there's a post on it by two women whose work I have admired for a while now, Dahlia Lithwick and Emily Bazelon. In it I learned that Palin's husband is on leave now ("supposedly"). But it also synthesized the current bafflement among women on the left and how damaging the Palin model of working motherhood can be. Check it out. And thanks to my friend P. for sending it along.
